Reply To: 2.3 – Number Sense vs. Math Fluency


Number sense is a fundamental skill that encompasses a deep understanding of numerical relationships. It goes beyond simply memorizing facts and figures; it involves the ability to comprehend how numbers relate to one another and how they can be manipulated to solve problems. When a person has a strong number sense, they are able to see patterns, make connections, and draw conclusions based on their understanding of numerical relationships.

Numerical fluency is having the mathematical understanding to find the most efficient way of expressing, and then solving, a problem.
